I have to say that after the rating of 95 by BA and 100 rating by RB, I was expecting something great. Well, let's just say that I was underwhelmed. It's an IPA that dark, so there's some bitterness to it, but not too much. Similar to to great divides IPA. The Tate's is good, but greatly dissapointing for me since I'm a Stout lover. Mouthfeel is bubbly and warm notes of hops, some dark chocolates and fruits.

Overall, it's okay. Nothing great. In the same vein, I'd choose something like great divide Titan IPA instead.

That being said, I recommend stouts. Dogfish Head World wide stout is awesome.

Had as part of the "Reserve Flight" at the Bruery Provisions for its Firestone Walker tap takeover. Poured in a 2oz taster. Reviewed from notes.

A- Thin white head, with decent retention. Deep black color with very little light permeation.

S- My buddy James and I both commented on how "dank" this beer smelled. Like pungent marijuana, rye, chocolate and dark hops. Not a bad smell, just different. Earthy tones.

T- Some darker hops and a middling maltiness. Not blown away by the taste.

M- Medium bodied and wet feel.

O- I was hoping for more, but this was not a bad beer at all.
